Posted:  25 Aug 2005 17:27
This traditional/spiritual was recently featured in the movie "Because of Winn-Dixie" and has also been done by several older blues/jazz musicians.  However, I've been unable to find all the lyrics for it.  Can you help?  Thanks & Blessings!

All my sickness will be over
When I lay my burden down
All my sickness will be over
When I lay my burden down

All my troubles will be over
When I lay my burden down
All my troubles will be over
When I lay my burden down

Lord, I'm feeling so much better
Since I lay my burden down
Lord, I'm feeling so much better
Since I lay my burden down

More verses:

Sometimes I feel, I feel like shouting
Since I lay my burden down
Sometimes I feeal, I feel like shouting

Since I lay my burden down
You can take the whole world, but give me Jesus
Since I lay my burden down

I heard this for the first time with a bunch of hard core brothers in Palb beach Stockade.I was the only white boy who would circle up with these guys in the middle of a dorm and sing.The Dorm had around a hundred dudes packed in there and about twenty of us would have a study and then sing and although a lot did not know Jesus or did not care for what we were doin,they still said nothing.Praise God.
